Sydney Writers' Festival 2016 events for Year 9 and 10 students

BOSTES is partnering for the first time with Australia's biggest literary celebration, the Sydney Writers' Festival, to present a full day of events specifically aimed at Year 9 and 10 students.

Bring your students to inspiring events delivered by the biggest stars of the 2016 Sydney Writers' Festival. Pulitzer prize-winning poets, internationally renowned economists and the world’s biggest thinkers speak on a wide range of subjects, all linked to the school curriculum.

This new program is designed to both inspire and stimulate students with knowledge and insight beyond the normal classroom experience. There are limited places so save the date to ensure your students can take advantage of this invaluable educational opportunity.

Two streams of specialist events will run from 10am-2pm on Monday 16 May in the heart of the festival precinct in Walsh Bay.

Full program details will be announced in early February.
